Updates to off-campus access and ILLiad logins

Starting Monday, June 11th the library website will offer a simpler, consolidated login page to access electronic resources from off-campus as well as to place an interlibrary loan request through the ILLiad system.  The changes are being made to simplify and improve one of the most frequently used pages on the library’s website.

UT Health Science Center faculty, staff and students will select the first option and be instructed to use their Health Science Center domain authentication (email username/password). This change will eliminate the need to remember another username/password.  It will also allow requests for interlibrary loan of articles and books to be processed immediately without the previous wait of 24 hours for registration processing.

The second option (Clinical Faculty & All Other Users) is only for users who do not have a Health Science Center domain account.  Users must first register with the library in order to use this login method.  Login using this method uses your library ID and corresponding PIN.  For all clinical and adjunct faculty members the library ID will be your HSC badge number.

This update to the library logins saves UT Health Science Center faculty, staff and students from creating a separate library account to access materials from off campus or to login to our interlibrary loan service, ILLiad.  Please note that all users will still need to be registered with the library to check out materials.

If you have any questions about the upcoming changes, please feel free to contact Eric Willman, Systems Librarian: willman@uthscsa.edu.
